Coast Band originated in 1981 founded by Andre Williams Jr, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. The band parted in the 90s but most of the original members are still playing professionally in St Louis Area and other parts of the world.
Dre -Dre & Coast is a revamping of the original band, this time including the son (me) Norman Andre Williams III, and old friends as well as new ones.
We are essentially a 7pc ensemble with expansion to a 9 piece when the opportunity is available. Our repertoire covers RnB, Soul, Jazz, and Blues and Pop. From artists such as Earth, Wind And Fire, Johnnie Taylor, Dorothy Moore, Kem, Milira, BB.King, Usher, Bruno Mars, K.C. and The Sunshine Band, Parliament, Aretha Franklin, and many more from the Jazz Era to the present.
